In what will likely be the first round of several accolades for both teammates this offseason, Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III and running back Alfred Morris on Thursday were named to the Pro Football Weekly/Pro Football Writers of America All-Rookie Team.
Griffin III was the only quarterback selected for this list, while Morris was joined by fellow rookie standout running back Doug Martin of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Here’s what Pro Football Weekly had to say about the two Redskins representatives on this list:

The Redskins are on a roll.
On the field, the team has built a four-game winning streak and remains in the hunt for a playoff spot.
Off the field, its players keep getting national recognition for their tremendous performances.
The NFL announced today that rookies Alfred Morris and Kirk Cousins each won separate weekly league awards, as Morris, a running back, was named NFL Rookie of the Week, while Cousins, a quarterback, won the “Never Say Die” moment of the week.

Redskins safety LaRon Landry set the defensive tone for Sunday’s game against the Packers by forcing a fumble on Green Bay’s first drive, and he helped seal the Redskins comeback by intercepting Aaron Rodgers’ final pass to put the Redskins in position for the winning field goal. In between those two things, he recorded a game-high 13 tackles (including 10 solo) , and generally continued what is shaping up as an excellent season for him.
And because of that, he was named this week’s NFC Defensive Player Of The Week, the announcement coming just a day before his 26th birthday. So, yeah, pretty good week for Landry.
But before he was NFC Defensive Player Of The Week, he was Comcast SportsNet’s Player Of The Game; here’s his interview after receiving that honor.
